Healing Liver Disease with Foods
April 21, 2019 04:00 PM PDT
Dr Sandra Cabot and Nutritionist Louise Belle discuss healing liver disease with foods.
If you have been diagnosed with a fatty liver it is vital that you take a pro-active approach, otherwise the condition will progress and your liver function will deteriorate. Fatty liver is closely associated with Syndrome X (insulin resistance) and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Luckily fatty liver disease is reversible; the liver is able to repair itself and fatty deposits can be removed from within it.Holistic Help for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Victoria Taylor discuss holistic help for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder that affects women during their reproductive years. As the name suggests, women with PCOS have cysts on their ovaries. In a normal ovary, a single egg develops and is released from the ovary each month. In women with PCOS, normal ovulation is inhibited, and the eggs become trapped in the ovaries. This results in small fluid-filled sacs (cysts) in the ovaries.Fatty Liver Life Saving Information

Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Victoria Taylor discuss fatty liver and how to reverse it.
Fatty liver occurs when excess fat accumulates inside liver cells. This means normal, healthy liver tissue becomes partly replaced with fatty tissue. The fat starts to invade the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains. The fatty liver has a yellow greasy appearance and is often enlarged and swollen with fat. This fatty infiltration slows down the metabolism of body fat stores, which means that the liver burns fat less efficiently, resulting in weight gain and inability to lose weight. However, some people can have a fatty liver without being overweight.How this artist used detox to beat the pain of arthritis

Dr Sandra Cabot chats to Mark about how he used detox to beat the pain of arthritis.
Arthritis refers to inflammation of the joints. It is incredibly common in the elderly, but there have also been several cases of young adults or middle-aged people with this debilitating disease. Symptoms include: stiffness, pain, swelling and deformity of the joint. There are several types of arthritis, however the two most common are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis is due to wear and tear of the joints, causing the gradual breakdown of the bone and the cartilage. This often results in a crackling noise in the joints known as crepitus, this is due to the rough surfaces of the bone rubbing against each other. Rheumatoid Arthritis on the other hand, is one of the most common autoimmune diseases where the immune system attacks the joints.Healthy gut bacteria
March 24, 2019 04:00 PM PDT
Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Margaret Jasinska discuss how to have healthy gut bacteria.
More and more we are hearing about the importance of having a healthy gut. There are around 500 different species of bacteria in the intestines and new species are continually being discovered. The types and amounts of bacteria in your intestines have a profound effect on your health. Good bacteria are anti-inflammatory, whereas bad bacteria secrete highly inflammatory substances into the gut. Having high levels of bad gut bacteria (dysbiosis) puts a huge strain on your immune system, increasing the amount of inflammation and tissue destruction occurring in the body.How to have a super digestive system

Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Margaret Jasinska discuss how to have a super digestive system.
The statement that good health resides in your gut was promoted by Hippocrates the father of medicine and I am a firm believer in this theory. Most of our immune system resides in the gut, and the liver is an important part of our immune competence.Kidney Health

Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Margaret Jasinska discuss kidney health.
You probably don’t often think about your kidneys. If you have never experienced a problem with them you would have no reason to. However, kidney disease tends to creep up on people, not causing symptoms until it becomes severe.Relieve headaches

Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Margaret Jasinska discuss how to relieve headaches.
Headaches are a common problem and are generally transient and eased by a mild analgesic such as tablets containing a combination of paracetamol or aspirin with codeine. More than 90% of all headaches are classified as tension headaches, which occur when the muscles in the back of your neck and/or scalp tighten. Sometimes they can be relieved by lying down at the first hint of a headache in a dark room, drinking cool water and placing a cold pack over the head and face.Stop Migraines

Dr Sandra Cabot and Naturopath Margaret Jasinska discuss how to manage migraines.
Migraine headaches are a particular type of headache characterised by severe throbbing pain in the whole head or one side of the head. It can be preceded by neurological symptoms such as visual problems, weakness of limbs or facial muscles. Migraine is often associated with nausea and sensitivity to light (photophobia). The pain can be very severe and frightening.The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting
February 25, 2019 09:31 PM PST
You may have heard of intermittent fasting. It is also known as time-restricted feeding. There are many variations on the theme, but the basic premise is to allow gaps between meals. As long as your three meals are satisfying and contain a good amount of protein and healthy fats, leaving several hours between meals is useful for reducing hunger and also improving glucose tolerance. This is important for people with syndrome X.
Many people with a fatty liver are unaware that they even have a liver problem, as the symptoms can be vague and non-specific, especially in the early stages. Most people with a fatty liver feel generally unwell, and find they are becoming increasingly fatigued and overweight for no apparent reason. www.cabothealth.com.au
